Our first History topic of the year is the Stone Age, and we'll be exploring all sorts of things: from stone circles and mammoth hunts, all the way to cave paintings and Stone Age food!
The Stone Age is part of our prehistory - that is the history which exists from before writing was around. We'll be learning about where the Stone Age fits into the chronology of British History, looking at the three main eras - Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. We're looking at over 2,500,000 years of history in the coming weeks through our topic, English, music, art, French and in some of our applied Maths lessons.
A Visitor from Skara Brae
On Thursday 5th October we had a special Stone Age visitor come into our class to teach us a lot of interesting things about the Stone Age settlement, Skara Brae.
For example, we learnt that Skara Brae was first discovered after a very powerful storm. We also found out that the houses in Skara Brae were connected by passageways!
Can you guess who are our mystery visitor was from the pictures below?
